http://twitter.com/#!/cnnbrk/status/483211329034264576

He is probably best known for his work on the long running CBS sitcom “Designing Women,” but Meshach Taylor has a long list of movie and television credits, most recently on “Criminal Minds” with longtime friend Joe Mantegna. His agent reports that the 67 year old actor passed away at his home in California after a long struggle with cancer.

http://twitter.com/#!/JKay00/status/500379540230008832

White House remembers Grand Canyon Park anniversary in predictable way [pic]

http://twitter.com/#!/DefinitionOfFaF/status/438838075276681216

Just because we’ve become accustomed to the White House Twitter feed inserting pictures of President Obama in tweets that are supposedly honoring anniversaries and birthdays of people, places and things otherwise unrelated to the president doesn’t mean they ever cease to amuse:

http://twitter.com/#!/WhiteHouse/status/438821119139651584

Why break precedent?

http://twitter.com/#!/AaronWorthing/status/439059925818675200

The metaphor of the backdrop might have made it a little more appropriate for Obama to appear in the photo:

Ha!

Rep. Keith Ellison deleted retweet: ‘hell yeah benihana up in this bitch’

http://twitter.com/#!/SFnicko/status/498826321485905920

That retweet, from the Twitter account belonging to Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., was posted yesterday then deleted after just 25 seconds. The tweet was originally posted by Michael Hudson, who claims he is the nephew of musician Slash:

‘FTW!’ Blanchett scores at SAGs with McConaughey mock, shade-throwing

http://twitter.com/#!/MajideDan/status/424892258689642496

Yes, it was.

Actress Cate Blanchett first hit the red carpet at the SAG Awards in style.

http://twitter.com/#!/budgetbabe/status/424704282785771520

And gave a winning and witty response on the red carpet.

http://twitter.com/#!/ThatRebecca/status/424701354032898048

Zing!

Blanchett then took home the award for Best Actress for her role in “Blue Jasmine.”

http://twitter.com/#!/MongrelMedia/status/424920152816095232

Her acceptance speech scored. First, she threw a little shade at Matthew McConaughey. As Twitchy reported, his acceptance speech Saturday night baffled and sparked “what is he smoking?” snickers.

But Blanchett wasn’t done shade-throwing!

Triple win for Ms. Blanchett.

‘WTH happened to James Woods?’ Fans wonder what’s up with conservative actor

http://twitter.com/#!/__MB___2013/status/411542985780633600

In October, Twitchy reported that fans wondered what had happened to James Woods during his ten-day absence from Twitter. Now, we’re almost at the two-month mark without a Twitter peep from the conservative actor and Twitchy favorite.

http://twitter.com/#!/air92503/status/411723867829198848

You’re not alone. Woods’ last tweet was on Oct. 17.

Woods didn’t tweet an announcement before going Twitter silent. Is he just busy with his new project?

http://twitter.com/#!/CuffyMeh/status/411598951372963840

Woods is the host and executive producer of “Futurescape,” which debuted on the Science Channel on Nov. 19.

http://twitter.com/#!/NASCARNAC/status/410129638502203392

While his patriotism, humor and biting political commentary are missed on Twitter, many people are enjoying the new series.

You’ve seen their films, cheered for their team, bought their album, and read their words…but you might not know that each of these famous faces have one thing in common: they all have someone else’s blood on their hands.

12. John Landis: The director was acquitted of involuntary manslaughter charges after an accident on the set of The Twilight Zone movie caused the death of actor Vic Morrow and two child actors. However, he gave $2 million to each of the children’s families.

13. Don King: The boxing promotor was the cause of TWO separate deaths. First, in self defense when a man broke into his gambling operation. The second landed him a second-degree murder conviction after stomping an employee to death who owed him $600.

14. Johnny Lewis: In 2012, the ‘Sons of Anarchy’ actor fell to his death after breaking into the home of and killing an elderly woman.

15. Christian Brando: Marlon’s son plead guilty to manslaughter after he shot and killed his sister’s boyfriend, though he claimed it was an accident.

Marie Claire mag skewered for absurd jab at Candace Cameron Bure

http://twitter.com/#!/Cry4Liberty/status/421086879996735489

As Twitchy reported, actress Candace Cameron Bure responded to feminist attacks on her marriage with a kick-ass photo.

http://twitter.com/#!/candacecbure/status/421180428095995904

In her book, Bure writes, “I chose to fall into a more submissive role in our relationship because I wanted to do everything in my power to make my marriage and family work.”

Keyword: “Chose.”

Bure embraces the biblical definition of “submissive” and said, “It is not weakness. It’s strength under control. It’s bridled strength.” That’s a choice that doesn’t get the stamp of approval from the supposedly “pro-choice” Left.

As we noted on Wednesday, this tweet from “women’s magazine” Marie Claire was among the feminist freak-outs.

http://twitter.com/#!/marieclaire/status/420671915418611712

A billion!!111!!eleventy!!11!

Marie Claire followed up that tweet with this one:

http://twitter.com/#!/marieclaire/status/420672872885915648

Candace Cameron Bure is setting women back “approximately a billion years” by determining what works best for her family, but “Girls” actress Lena Dunham? #GoGirl! Predictable.

http://twitter.com/#!/BlondeNY/status/421120365218496512

Pass the barf bag and take a look at some of the other things that really “matter to women,” as determined by Marie Claire.

Last but not least, a retweet of Planned Parenthood:

Animal Lovers Are REALLY Unhappy With This Celeb Fashion Trend

Every season, there’s some bizarre new celebrity fashion trend. We thought we’d seen it all — until Gucci released a pair of shoes that has animal rights activists everywhere hopping mad.

And when I say “hopping,” I mean it. Gucci showed off the shoes at Milan Fashion Week, and they’ve quickly become the must-have item for celebrities. What’s so bad about them, you ask?

The loafers are lined with fur — kangaroo fur, to be exact.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

No one likes to think about a kangaroo dying for a pair of loafers, but that hasn’t stopped celebs from wearing them.

Dr. Daniel Ramp of the University of Technology Sydney told the Daily Mail that “using kangaroo fur to produce fashion footwear is exploitation, especially since populations are in decline. The killing of these animals is inhumane, there is collateral damage and kangaroo culling has a large social cost on the remaining families and their young. Kangaroos are not objects — they are highly intelligent social animals.”

British model Alexa Chung was spotted wearing them at Milan Fashion Week, as you can see below. Other fans of the footwear include Sienna Miller, Kendall Jenner, and Dakota Johnson.

The loafers are popular with men, too. From fashion editor Simone Marchetti…

…to Tom Hiddleston in a recent Gucci photo shoot, everyone seems to want in on this trend.

So, what do you think? Would you wear these shoes? Let us know in the comments!

Personally, my feet are sweating just looking at them.
